Workshop 2023 2

My teacher was fun, funny, and really knowledgeable. She was also inspiring. Now I know what I want to do in high school, and beyond. I also loved getting the chance to run the lights and sound during my afternoon theater activity. No one else had any experience, so my teacher let me design what was needed and run the booth.

Workshop 2023 1

The two-week workshop my middle schooler took through Choate Summer Programs was incredible. Excellent facilities, inspiring instruction, and the chance to learn with other kids who share his passion made his experience second to none. He thrived!

Learning and living with other students from around the world opened my son’s eyes to new perspectives and gave him a taste of what it might be like to attend boarding school. Choate’s summer faculty offered him caring support in the dorm and excellent instruction in the classrooms.

Writing 2022 2

I tried different styles of writing and stepped outside of my comfort zone to do it. I hadn't written many persuasive essays before, and I did one that I actually really enjoyed. I also met and interacted with kids I wouldn't normally on an everyday basis. Regardless of where they were from, or what interests they had, we all had something in common. —2022 Writing Workshop Student
